The death of Boris Grachevsky, the director and founder of the Yeralash children's entertainment newsreel, became known on January 14th. This information was confirmed by his third wife.
Grachevsky had a bright life full of events. Particular press attention was paid to his personal life, writes the Federal News Agency. The director met his first wife Galina Grachevskaya in 1970, when he had just returned from the army. They lived together for 35 years. In 1972, a son, Maxim, was born, and seven years later, a daughter, Ksenia. The wife was next to the aspiring director during the most difficult stages of his career, but the marriage ended in divorce.
Grachevsky executed the document in secret. His daughter was never able to forgive him for leaving the family. They didn't communicate anymore. Once in an interview, she stated that she could not look at photographs of her father with young wives. Grachevsky himself said that the marriage collapsed, since his wife stopped supporting him.
Grachevsky's second wife, Anna Panasenko, met at a social event. Then she was 24 years old and she came from Minsk to conquer Moscow. In marriage, their daughter Vasilisa was born, but their life together did not last long. Anna believed that her husband was interfering with her development, Grachevsky stated that the young wife spends time in nightclubs instead of taking care of her daughter. And although the divorce was scandalous, after reports of the death of the director, Anna published several scrupulous posts on Instagram.
The third and last wife of the director Ekaterina Belotserkovskaya was 35 years younger than him. They got married in secret, just a year after his divorce from Panasenko. As Grachevsky admitted, it was Catherine who was able to make him truly happy. She supported him when doctors diagnosed skin cancer and helped with all stages of his recovery. In 2020, their son Philip was born.
The last time Catherine saw her husband was on December 28 during his hospitalization. Despite the efforts of the doctors, the director was not saved.
